Origins of the Coffee £:rJerno

During World War I, Germany was blockaded by tile Allies, and towards the end of the war the country experienced many shortaqes. inGiuding,for Instance; a lack of patn-kllters and especially morphine. The surgeons had a very difficult time at the front when trainloads of injur'ed soldiers arrived who needed surgery and patching up. The surgeons only had enough morphine to help their patients throuqh the surgery but had nothing to give them .agalnst post-oporattve pain. Many of these soldiers were proscribed water enemas for constipation.

However, there was one thlrig that was always on hand, and that was coffee for the surgeons and doctors who often had to work around the clock for 24 .. 36 hours and could only keep awake by drinking coffee, Sometimes there was coffee left over in the pot, and the nurses, desperate to help the patients with their pain after surgery, decided to use the cottee for the enemas that they wore being given anyway. lhev reasoned, "Since tho coffee is doing the doctors good, perhaps it will holp tho patients, too." And, indeed, the patients reported that thoy were getting pain relief from the coffee enemas.

After the war, intrigued by the nurses' experience, two German professors investigated tho effects of introducing caffeine into the rectum of laboratory animals. They found that the caffeine entered the liver via the portal system and caused an increased flow of bile. This bile, in turn, allowed accumulated poisons and toxins to be released and evacuated from the body.

Years later, realizing the importance of detoxification, Dr Gerson incorporated coffee enemas in his therapy.

\A;17Y Take a Coffee Enema 7:>

At the beginning of the therapy especially, detoxification of the body is of tho utmost importance. It is absotutelv necessary to administer frequent enemas, day and night. Patients with more advanced cancer are severely intoxicated and the absorption of the tumour masses intoxicates thorn even more. In the beginning, Dr Gorson lost several of his patients by coma hepatlcum 1, since ho didn't know at that time, and therefore neglected, the vital importance of frequent and continued elimination of poisonous substances from tho body, with the help of juices and enemas. As Max Gerson has said, "A patient is unlikely to dio from cancer, but from the toxins accumulated in tho body."

Another reason for taking coffee enemas is that experience has proved that frequent enemas largely eliminate the need for sedation. Coffee enemas can help reduce severo pain, nausea, general nervous tension and depression. They also help against spasms, precordial" pain and other difficultios. However, attar much heavy pain medication, coffen enemas don't work irnrnedlatelv and they don't control tho pain at once. Therefore the pain medication should continue to be used, In most cases it can soon be reduced as pain levels decrease .

/About the c.,offee Enema

,Putionts have to know thut the coffee enemas 11m not {liven to irnprove climinntion but to stimulate tho liver to release toxins. Tho caffeine in the enema is absorbed through the haemorrhuidul veins, (see lJlngrmll 1 J which ore port of tho rectal plexus of volns. Patients oro recommended to toke their enemas while lying on their right side, as there is hattnr absorption into the hnemcrrholdal veins on this side., Frorn tho haemorrhoidal veins tilt) caffoino Is then absorbed up into the portal system which carries tho blood supply to tho liver and to the gilll bladder. (SOil IJ/n(Jl1lf11 10m/ DiogflllTl 2. J

Thoro are offe<:ts on both the liver ond 0011 bladder brouqht ubout by the irritant nature of tho cutteinc, These effects can sornetlmes cause the following symptoms:

As the glill bladder is irritated, it beqlns to underpo spasms (IS it attempts to get rid of this irritunt. It begins to flush bilo down throuqh the bile duct to the outlet of the hile system where it empties into the duodenal ioop of the small intestine. (See Dillgfi11J1 ? tuu! Di{Jgmm 3.J Tho caffeine causes n dilation of un openinq of tho sphvncter at this locution, nllowing a much greator production of bile to be flushed from the body. This COli sometimes cuuse spasms ut tho start of the therapy, because of irritation on tho walls and till! nerves of tho lntestlnal tract. Also, as the hi le is goinO through the intestinal tract, it can cause tlatulence and gas. However, all this is fl positive sign that the gull bladder is beginning to work. Many people with chronic diseuses have a gall bladder which is not functioning adoquatelv.

Not all of the lIi,lo ooes down tho intestinal tract, however. On occasion, some of tho bile hocks up into the stomach, where it comes to rest, causing some irritation. This con especially happen durinq H hcallnq reaction or 'flare-up' when 0 lock of appetite, nausea and sometimes vomiting can be experienced. Should this happen, copious amounts of peppermint tea should lie drunk, every 15 - 20 minutes, to flush the bile out of the stomach, and grllel should be used in all theiulces, which will help soothe the lining of the intestinal tract.

An Ancient" Enema?

The following Is an excerpt taken {i-am The /3!f1sene (;:;"sl'el of Peace: tranelatod from a 3rd Century AramaIc manuscript' and Old SlavonIc Texts by Edmond aordeaux .szektfl)~

"Think not that it is sufficient tltat tlte angel 01 water embrace you outwards only. I tell you truly, the within is greater by much titan tI~e uncleanness without. And lie who cleanses himsell without, but within remains unclean, is like to tombs that outwards are IJainted lair, but ate within full of all manner 0/ horrible lt1ideannesse.~ anel abominations. So I tell you twly, suffer the angel 01 water to baptise you also within, that you may be.come free from all yo"r past sins, and that within li1<cwise you may become as pitre a.s the river's foam sporting in the su.nlight.

Seek, therefore, a large trailing gourd, Ilaving a stall< the length 0/ a mall; rake (jut its inwards and fill it with water from the river which tlte sun has warmed. Hang it upon the branch of a tree, and Imeel upon the ground be/ore the angelo/ water, and suffer tlte end of the stalk 0/ the trailing gourd to enter YOIn' hinder {Jarts, dlat the water may flow through all your bowels. Afterwards rest kneeling on tile ground be/ore the angel of water and /J1'aY to the living God that he will forgive you. all your past sins, and pray to the angel of water ellat he will free your body from every um:learmess and disease.

Then let the water run out from your body, that it may carry away from within it all the Imclean and evil-smelling things of Satan. And you shall see with your eyes and smell with YOltr nose all tlte abominations and tmcleanllesses which defileel the temtJle of your bodYi even all the sins which abode in your body, tormentitlg you with all manner of pains. I tell you truly, baptism with water frees you from all these. Renew your batJtising with water on every da,Y of your fast, till the day when you see rhca the water which flows out of you is as pure us the rive)" s foam."
